Syberia - Part 1
Well I paid for this game and was really looking forward to playing it as I prefer the large file games to the hidden object ones. However it downloaded to my laptop (Vista) but would not play. I then tried to play it on Windows 7 but experienced the same problem with error codes. I contacted BFG interactive help and they went through the troubleshooting guide with me to no avail! I did get a refund and went on to get Dracula: Origins which was brilliant so all was not lost.

Syberia part 1
Do not bother with this if you want to fondly remember the beautiful original game.
What were the game makers thinking..
They have taken an excellent game and cut it to shreds, leaving out what made the original game such a classic.
The lovely water for example flowed like water in the first, here it is just static. The characters are now like cardboard cutouts and much cgi stuff has been cut out too. Part 1 plays like a demo, its very short.
Very extremely dissapointing.
Rated low simply due to not enjoying playing what should have been the whole game and not just a 'part' of it.

I bought the game after the trial because of all the reviews that stated how long and challenging this game was, so I thought it would be fun. First of all there are NO puzzles, you just find stuff and put it where it goes.It's just like Nancy Drew except less challenging. As far as the length of the game, it is EXTREMELY SHORT. It is about 1/3 of what a normal game like this should be and now I know why... there are three parts, so wow, you have to pay three times to play one bleeping game. The only reason that it might seem "long" to other people is if they can't figure out how to advance in the game and they run back and forth for hours, however it is really easy to advance. I'm so angry that I actually bought this worthless game!!

not worth the time
I just did the hour free-view and have to say I did NOT like it. Kept waiting for it to get better but it didn't so I was glad when the trial was over and felt like it was a waste of my time. Probably won't try any of the Syberia games because of this one. Not sure if was too easy or too difficult but I just did not get it. Sorry Big Fish developers--still love Big Fish though! :)

Confusing and more
Got this when it 1st came out (no trial version since it was a large file game, big mistake) and barely played it since. The visuals and storyline seem great but the character movement is terrible. Unlike other HOGs this is a 3rd person view where you must move the character thru the screen executing actions, not a point and click game. If this appeals to you then get it and have fun, didn't work for me fun wise.

Slow moving, annoying dialogue, mediocre graphics.

Awful - don't waste your money
This is the worst HO game I've ever played - or should I say, attempted to play. Wooden characters which are difficult to move about the screen just completely frustrated me time and again, and I wish I'd never bothered.
Have much more fun with something like Munchausen!

I have nothing positive to say about this game. It did not capture my attention at all playing the demo. It is a terrible game. Graphics, sound, quality, fun, etc are totally missing from this one. Thank goodness for Big Fish allowing demos!!

boring and slow
i gave up after about two hours. i can't believe that you have to wait for the avatar to walk across the screen and then for the scene to change. what a waste of time. sitting there waiting for all of that nonsense was infuriating (not to mention incredibly boring)!
don't bother with this game. ugh.
